Meet the Rascals

Who are the Rascals?

We are a bike-crazy family of three. On any given day you can find us cruising around town running errands on bicycles, or hitting up ramps at the mountain bike park.

While Blair and I have always been avid cyclists, we started biking with our son just before his first birthday. This has opened up a whole new world for us. Now we spend lots of time geeking out over kids bikes, family bikes, and trailer-cycles. We are out to prove that having kids doesn’t mean you have to hang up your bike or slow down.

Beginning August 1, 2017 we will be traveling full-time around North America in our RV.  Of course we’ll be bringing our bikes, and we plan to continue the mission of Rascal Rides while on the road.  Check out our itinerary at Rascals on the Road.  If we are coming thru your hometown, we’d love to go ride!

What is Rascal Rides?

Rascal Rides = Kids + Bikes + Family

At Rascal Rides, our goal is to get #morekidsonbikes. Cycling is good for the planet, good for kid’s health, and good for families.

We support all kinds of cycling to include mountain biking (our personal fave), commuting, road biking, BMX, cyclocross, racing, and good ol’ rides around the block.

This website aims to:

  • Inspire kids and their families to get outdoors on bikes
  • Provide information and resources to help empower cycling parents
  • Report on the latest news and industry happenings
  • Review and recommend the best kids bikes and cycling gear
  • Advocate for cycling infrastructure, environmental conservation, and trail access so that our kids have safe and clean places to bike
